It was first described in the middle of 1990s. Since then, only small number of papers were published evaluating the outcomes of this procedure. In general, laparoscopic aortobifemoral bypass is a feasible and safe minimally invasive alternative to open surgical approach, when performed in experienced centers for patients with extensive aortoiliac occlusive disease. In this review, we discuss the current evidences behind this argument. Keywords : Laparoscopy; aortoiliac occlusive disease; aortobifemoral bypass
